Radical Christians, U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, and the Paris Climate Accord

Published on June 4, 2017 By sirrahc

It has been a busy weekend, and I wasn’t sure what I’d have time to share with you this week. I knew I wanted a political element to it, though. So, I looked back at several articles from the past few days and came up with a few items of interest to briefly comment on…. […]

What to Do with the United Nations

Published on February 26, 2017 By sirrahc

“The U.N. was established to promote Western values. Franklin Roosevelt did not set it up to be anti-American or promote dictators and terrorist regimes.”  — Fred Fleitz, a senior VP at the Center for Security Policy There is a lot of grumbling about the United Nations and, lately, some of this has turned to talk […]

Thank God for Sperm Whales and Other Predators

Published on November 22, 2015 By sirrahc

As this year’s Thanksgiving celebration approaches here in the U.S., we are encouraged to consider all the things we have to be thankful for. Of course, the usual things tend to be family, jobs, food on the table, good friends, homes, cars, etc. Some of us go a little further, mentioning things like books, games, […]

Ants vs. Global Warming

Published on February 15, 2015 By sirrahc

FUN FACT: Ants make up 15-25% of the total mass of living animal tissue on the continents! We’ll get back to the ants in a minute. But, first… The Sun is a nuclear furnace. Hydrogen, the lightest element and most abundant chemical substance in the universe, is constantly being fused within it into helium. Over […]

Obama’s Climate Change Plan: My Prediction

Published on June 1, 2014 By sirrahc

Tomorrow, the Obama administration is supposed to announce its new plan, as drafted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to fulfill the President’s original election-year promises for fighting climate change. (Or, was it “global warming”?) The new standards will be finalized in June 2015, after everyone has had a year to react & respond. States […]

Frack This!

Published on June 10, 2011 By sirrahc

Since at least the 1970s, we’ve been warned that the world is at, or close to reaching, “peak oil“. As you can probably guess, the term indicates reaching some sort of limit. According to Wikipedia, “Peak oil is the point in time when the maximum rate of global petroleum extraction is reached, after which the […]

Top 10 Things Liberals Have Taught Me about Myself (Part 4 of 4)

Published on May 1, 2011 By sirrahc

Today’s post is the final one in the series (in case the “Part 4 of 4” wasn’t obvious). This confession/self-revelation has been so cathartic, and I thank you all for reading. It is amazing what one can learn about one’s self from other people, even total strangers, isn’t it? I know I implied this earlier, […]

Wind Energy: Just a Bunch of Hot Air?

Published on September 5, 2010 By sirrahc

Wind energy. Electricity generated by the power of the wind. It’s a cool idea. (Or, should I say “hot”?) Clean (i.e., no carbon emissions or other harmful waste products), natural and “renewable”. Presumably cheap, too. Yay! Every politician’s dream, especially those who are funded and/or pressured by the environmentalist lobbyists and other “green” groups. Of […]

An Inconvenient Word about Laurie David

Published on August 7, 2010 By sirrahc

Something a little different today, but you’ll see the connection. Laurie David (aka Laurie Lennard) is the ex-wife of writer/producer/actor Larry David (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and devoted mother of Cazzie & Romy David. She is also a liberal/progressive activist, particularly for the (perceived) dangers of catastrophic man-made Global Warming. (Does that make her a […]

Enviro-Politics: Feinstein Can't Be Serious

Published on April 14, 2010 By sirrahc

Consider the following facts: 1) Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a law requiring that 1/3 of the electricity produced in California by 2020 must be from “renewable sources”; solar and wind energy are the favored options. 2) The best location in CA for wind farms and solar plants (which need a LOT of relatively flat land, by […]
